to cut. no. no. don't cut that. one exception is obama care. and that is why stopping amnesty is important that remains the most important issue if amnesty goes through obama care will not be overturned. hispanics support obama care so please do not take your eye off the ball because obama care already passed in the senate they're trying to flip it through by not talking about it. politicians know as soon as we talk about it people will write and call and tell us we don't want obama care. as long as they don't say anything, we can slip it through the dark of night and republican contributors, you know, and mark zuckerbergs are going to give us money and screw the people who hate amnesty. as for this looming government shut down i've been listening to you talk about it on the radio along with other 14 million listeners and i have been dying to talk to you about this because i really don't think republicans should be on either side saying the other side is a monster or doing something horribly wrong. we all want to defund obama care. one side, i understand says had is going hurt
>>> defending obama care. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm michael smerconish in for chris matthews. leading off tonight president obama throws down the gauntlet on republicans launching an all-out offensive against republican threats to cripple his signature achievement, obama care. in a press conference late today the president was defiant. at times he almost seemed to taunt republicans when it came to their threat to shut down the government over the issue. in attacks that were swift and surgical, he began by calling out the republican fixation of obstructionism. >> the really interesting question is why it is that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail, their number one priority. the one unifying principle in the republican party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don't have health care. that's hard to understand as an agenda that's going to strengthen our middle class. >> and this was his response to tea party leaders like ted cruz, rand paul and mike lee who are championing
obama holds a nearly hour-long press conference and makes some big news on the country's surveillance programs. also, tonight, the president defends obama care and slams republicans for hating on it but not having much of a plan of their own. and one of the most powerful women in the world is opening up about her very recent and surprising run-in with racism. i will tell you oprah winfrey's incredible story. melissa harris perry will put it into context. all that is ahead. >>> tonight we begin with president obama's news conference in which we took on obama care and the threat by some republicans to try to shut down the government over it when they have no alternative plan. we'll get to that soon. but one area where president obama was really engaged today was the issue of surveillance and the national debate that has arisen, particularly since edward snowden leaked classified information. the president today describing four steps he would take to make the nsa both more transparent and more accountability including working with congress to tighten the patriot act, making sure someone

of folks were expecting president obama to come out and announce that they had decided to move forward unilaterally move forward without congressional approval, and that's not what he said. he said he has decided that military action is the right next step but that he is going to put the matter to a vote in congress, and of course we know in the past several days, more and more members of congress have been saying that they want a vote, and they think they deserve a vote before president obama actually launches any type of military strike, so it appears as though those voices have won in this case, so this will be put to a congressional vote. a couple things that stood out to me, craig. president obama saying that the chairman of the joint chiefs told him he is ready to move forward with military action, and that it's not necessarily time sensitive, that if this occurs in a month they would still be able to weaken assad's military capabilities. so that is one of the things that stood out. another thing, you didn't hear president obama say he was going to call congress back right now, a

stories that continue to eat into the second half of the obama presidency. as harry truman said if you want a friend in washington, get a dog. president obama did so this week with the addition of sunny, another portuguese water dog, companion to bo and one of the few bright spots in the dog days of summer. joining me today, correspondent for "the guardian" anna marie cox and former director of speech writing for the president -- i can't get the words out, i'm so excited, columnist for the daily beast and co-founder of fenway strategies, jon favreau and "washington post" columnist and msnbc political columnist eugene robinson. joining us now is chuck todd who is also, of course, host of msnbc's "the daily rundown." before we get into the actual policy here, i want to talk about the sort of bird's-eye view as far as what the president is doing on this great middle class tour if you will. to me it seems like he's trying to build up as much political capital as possible before he gets back to washington. what do you think he's trying to do? >> i think he's trying to talk about what people
